I enjoy the Singapore Chinatown for quite a different mix of shops, outlets and many food choices. Nice place to get a foot massage and wander round.

It's a nice place. The streets are lined with colorful old Chinese houses and lanterns. There are shopping places too and you can bargain. Some stalls sells interesting things like colorful chopsticks and Chinese umbrellas. The best thing about this place is the food. Go to the famous dessert cafes near the MRT station.

Singapore is well known for its high end/designer shopping - but Chinatown is the place to shop in Singapore if you are a poor-broke-college-kid (like me). Great deals, and you can haggle everything. And the food is great in this area too!

Lots of souvenirs to buy here from the street shops. Interestingly, this is not just Chinatown, there's also a Hindu temple here. We did not enter any temples but just by walking around the shop houses you can get a feel of how people lived in the past. We also visited the museum Chinatown Heritage Centre located right in the heart of Chinatown. Very representative and realistic. Good educational tour. Meanwhile do steer away from the shops selling cameras or tailored clothes. They might sound attractive initially but usually lots of mark ups at the end.

Is a large area and there are many shops selling gifts and clothing, but the product is not very good. Besides having a large temple with beautiful design.
